Did Andy Burnham complain to the conference Chairthingy?

I'm not sure who the Chair of the Labour Conference is, but she has (obviously) been in charge of picking delegates to ask questions and speak. Over the weekend she made a passing remark about how she was clearly biased towards the colour red as she kept on picking people to speak that she could identify by that colour.

Today she announced to the conference, and I paraphrase, that she had received a complaint from an Evertonian that she should not be biased against the colour blue and so she was trying her best. I wonder whether that complaint was received from the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Andy Burnham?

Burnham is after all an Evertonian, which means that regardless of his wrong politics (and apparent natural eye make-up) makes him an all-round decent chap worth listening to occassionally. God, what a horrible thought, if he stood for the Labour leadership I would have to decide between football and politics.

That is a tough choice.
